Yuma, AZ - Thousands of American senior citizens have been moving to Mexico, only to sneak back illegally in a scheme to collect benefits.

Seniors such as Ron (not his real name) have fallen through the cracks of the Medicare system and other retirement programs, and have desperately tried to find a solution. This has led them in a journey across the southern US border.

"The last straw was when we could not get Medicare Part D. We didn't know what we were going to do. But then we realized there were millions of people who had figured out how to survive in America and were doing quite well. We decided to do what they were doing.

Now we get everything we need, no questions asked."
